Alpine coach radiator part #

Looks like I need a new radiator for my 2005 38' fdts Alpine coach. Does anyone know where I can find the part number for the radiator?
I was told by a gentleman at "Radiator Supply House" that he would need the part # to build me a new one.
If anyone has helpful hints about replacing the radiator they would be appreciated. Thanks

Donlynn,

Enter a search for Radiator on this site. You will find the phone number for Burk Morgan who was Marketing VP for Western RV. He bought all the radiator inventory when WRV went out of business. He may still have some radiators. Give him a call.

Had some work done on my 2001 at Cummins Coach Care in Sparks, NV. They sent my radiator out for a rebuild. Not Cheap.

OK--the 2005 and later version of the radiator that is prone to failure, is an apoxy-based seam process [cant be rebuilt]. Earlier radiators and the newer replacement ones are brazed/soldered. Most/all of WRV's radiators were directly supplied by Radiator Specialists in Sacramento--so no part numbers. A search of this forum will provide several sources for new radiators--including steel/copper vs aluminium. Think these sources build new rads based on measurements from the OEM.

Any good LOCAL radiator facility nearby? IF you get wrong radiator / problem later one might be glad later dealing locally. . . PROBABLY also a good time to check ENTIRE cooling system: T-Stat & Rad Cap, Hoses & Belts, Water Pump, Fan, Heater Valve & related parts, etc.. .Also, WHY, did radiator fail???Lots of people might replace a broken part without addressing as to why part broke. . .YMMV. . .
